We bring 3 when all of us travel. My husband needs one just for all of his electronics.

When I go solo, I bring one so I can have everything plugged in one place instead of scattered all over the room.

The ones we use have the USB plug in too so my DD and DS can charge their Ipods.

Absolutely. With 2 smartphones, an ipad, and 2 Touchs there I'd hate to see something get fried due to a surge.

I've done both in the past at other places (and really I only brought it because I had a number of items that needed plugs and I didn't want to hog all the outlets), but probably haven't brought one anywhere in a few years as I had pared down what I needed to charge at any one time. However last weekend traveling with family we had in one room two ipads, two iphones, another cell phone, a fan, and a video camera all of which seemed to need to be plugged in at the same time. I think it is probably time to bring a small multi plug again at least when traveling with others.

thanks to the tips board I started taking one with me a couple of trips ago. It's in my "Disney box" since that's usually the only time I really need it. Thinking of upgrading for December's trip to one that has standard plugs and USB.

I never leave home without mine that I got at Target. It has three standard plugs, plus two USB slots. I don't know what I would do without it!!

I told DH about this thread last night and told him to be sure to pick up one or two. Between me and him and our DD7, we'll have 2 iPhones, 1 iPod Touch, possibly her 3DS and/or my Kindle, a laptop, a camera battery charger, and 2 Halos. I'm so happy to have found this thread! lol
